of good information there. i would encourage you to check it out and give us your feedback. and in the spirit of the acknowledgment that you made, mr. chair, of acknowledging the great work of staff, i'm happy to start out my report with special recognition awards for a small number of those staff that we want to honor today. so, first i'd like to ask our cfo ms. bose to come forward with lauren [speaker not understood]. lauren is a principal administrative analyst on the sf park team. she's been a member of that team since november 2009. she has led the planning implementation of difficult and complex parking policy efforts including policies related to city and sfmta employee parking as well as various neighborhood parking management proposals, all of which have been very popular. her general responsibilities include acting as project manager for on street parking pricing policy and implementation which is really at the core of sf park. she is the coordinator for the neighborhood parking management proposals, including all the technical work and outreach. and let me just

where bart is paying us, that there be some similarity, or at least, in terms of what each agreement looks like. in this case you have two agreements. one has a term ending 2014, another one has a term ending 2020. you know. i don't understand why that is. if you look at some of the amounts that are being paid, the cap in terms of what the city is responsible for paying bart is $14 million, as i understand it. which is about 52% more over the next two years. and then if you look at what -- where bart is paying the city, that is capped at 5%. so, i'm not saying that it should be 5%, but there was a big disparity between 52% and 5%. i think the budget and legislative analyst had a recommendation in terms of the fast pass agreement of 10.5 million which would have made it 14%. and, so, again, i'm not saying that it should be this number or that number. but in terms of parity between the two agreementses and the approach, i do think that there are some questions that jump out, you know. and, so, just wondering if you can comment on that. >> yeah, i would be pleased through the chair. to

that fast pass, you're paying us to be able to ride on bart system. bart's fare increases ostensibly represent the cost of bart providing the service. so, as bart's costs go up, i don't think it's unreasonable that that cost may go up. it's true, we don't control bart's fare increase, but i think it's also fair to say that bart's not making its fare policy decisions based on, you know, what it's going to get out of this agreement. i know you weren't suggesting this, butedth fact that we don't control it i guess my point is i don't think is inherently a bad thing. and then finally, the final point on the cap, i said before supervisor campos arrived, we in bart are willing to accept the budget analyst recommendation to bring that cap down to be closer aligned for the two years that the agreement is in place. if we extend it, we would come back with perhaps an adjusted cap. >> so, mr. rifkin, supervisor campos, sorry, do you have any follow-up? >> no, go ahead. >> so, a few comments on that. one, in terms of our payment to bart is based upon their fare increases. their pitv to us is bas
